MG Motor Australia is proud to announce the donation of a fleet of vehicles to the South Western Sydney Local Health District. The MG ZS SUVs will be used for the transportation of personal protection equipment (PPE) and essential medical equipment and goods in response to the COVID-19 health pandemic.
The vehicles will support front line workers for the duration of the pandemic, delivered to Bankstown, Bowral, Camden, Campbelltown, Fairfield and Liverpool hospitals, as well as emergency operations teams and mental health and community health facilities.
Peter Ciao, CEO of MG Motor Australia and New Zealand said: "During uncertain times it has been inspiring to see the way health and essential workers have banded together to look after us and one another. This is a value we share at MG and is reflected in all aspects of our business. Like many local businesses, we have been committed to looking at ways to support the fight against COVID-19. We're humbled to provide additional transportation resources to medical teams on the frontline working tirelessly to keep us all safe."
South Western Sydney Local Health District is one of the largest health districts in New South Wales, covering seven Local Government Areas from Bankstown to Wingecarribee, with a population of approximately 966,450 people. The District is among the most rapidly growing populations in NSW, projected to grow to more than a million people in the next decade.
A South Western Sydney Local Health District spokesperson thanked MG Motor Australia for its donation of the SUVs. "This is a wonderful example of the contribution and support we are receiving from the community of the south west as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic."
